It's great. But may not be worth the wait out front.

Many people rave about this place and I understand why. Seafood is cooked simply and served generously. My salad had warm croutons which is a nice touch. Service is always efficient and comes with a smile. But here's my beef - the place is VERY small and waits for a table can be long. Really long. And everyone waits outside on a bench in front of the restaurant on the sidewalk. That's fine on a nice night, not so great when the rain is falling. They also used to let you drink wine while waiting outside. Evidently that's against "regulations" and they can't do it anymore. So consider this - as good as the food is think twice on a busy night and be warned that it just may not be worth the time. Of course if they ever let you drink wine out there again the time will go faster!

It is like being in Boston

The resaurant reminds me of home a lunch counter and a few small tables serving the best clam chowder west of Boston.

Ignored

Stopped in around 5PM - the place was not crowded at all. Completely ignored for 20 minutes so I left. Who needs this kind of nonsense at these prices?

The place for seafood in SF

After arriving in San Francisco for the first time I took the subway to 16th and Mission and went straight to this place for dinner. Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff made me feel welcome immediately. I chose the Cioppino which was one of the nights specials and couldn't have been happier with the food or the price (worth every penny). The cioppino was perfect and possibly the best I ever had (don't tell my wife). I highly recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good (sea)food in an honest welcoming atmosphere.

Best little seafood joint

One of the best little seafood places in San Francisco. Sit at the counter or sit at the tables, the food will not disappoint. Clam chowder, fresh fish, etc, all is excellent and reasonably priced.

good not great

I liked the place and the neighborhood. The good service and great oysters rock. The price is not right, though, and I think is a little bit overrated, but overall I WOULD recommend.

Best fresh seafood around

Best fresh seafood around here. The restaurant is kind of small, and you probably have to wait, but the food is always excellent. It is an oyster bar, and frankly oysters aren't my cup of tea. But the rest of the menu never disappoints me.

succulent fried oysters

Peaking into this small, unassuming storefront restaurant, we saw a clean, whitewashed interior reminiscent of the simple seafood eateries dotting the eastern shoreline. We immediately went inside and ordered up a double batch of the daily special, fried oysters. What a treat! Succulent oysters bursting through a light, crunchy and oh-so-tasty breadcrumb crust. For fried oyster lovers, it was a case of gastronomic perfection.

Outstanding

Some of the best crab anywhere. Outstanding oysters, chowder, crab melts, crab cakes, pastas, prepared and served by the same local staff for 26 years. A delight, like having dinner with friends, homemade salad dressings, fresh crab, fresh fish, fresh oysters, all in a neighborhood setting. Delicious!

comfy

I've only had the chowder, as everything else was overpriced. But I must say the chowder was delicious. A great lunch spot when you want a warm up!
